Re: Ford Smartphone Connectivity Across Entire 2017 Lineup ...& BEFORE! back to 2010!
I reached out to the concierge on lincoln.com and this is what they said:
Andrew, welcome to Lincoln. How may I be of service?
Last year Ford and Lincoln put out a press release for a device for models going back to 2010 adding 4g service through the OB2 port called SmartLink and said it would be available summer of 2017 however I cannot find any other info on this in terms of pricing or purchasing I was curious if this was still planned or cancelled?
That would be the Smartlink. It is still planned and the estimated time frame of availability will be this year. Our local dealerships parts department may be able to provide additional information on that.
Do you need assistance in locating your nearest dealership?
Nope I know my dealership thanks for the info!
I wonder why this was delayed cause the press says summer of 2017.
